I have to say that Sally, our tour guide from ChinaTours raised the bar for hospitality to a whole new level.
She fluently introduced the history of the Terracotta Warriors and other places of interests in good English and is always so accommodating to my parents and me.
The lunch place which she brought us gave us an opportunity to taste the local flavours of Xi’An.
She has indeed made this trip a super memorable one for me and my parents. I’m so glad I chose ChinaTours.
Ask for Sally if you are visiting Xi’An the next time.
